That Two Year Old That’s Amazing At Basketball Trick Shots Squared Off Against Shaq On Jimmy Kimmel Live. Shaq Was Overwhelmed.
Jason Whitlock, brotein consumer and provocateur extraordinaire, took a shot at Shaq during last night’s opening episode of TNT’s Inside The NBA. So Inside The NBA took the opportunity to make fun of a fat and sleeping Jason Whitlock. Some more context, after the jump.

The Beef Goes On: Dwight Howard Does His Best Charles Barkley Impression, Makes Sure To Take Dig At Shaq
Prior to the start of tonight’s game between the Chicago Bulls and the Orlando Magic, Dwight Howard met with the media to give his scouting report of Derrick Rose in the most entertaining way possible. He first dropped a little Charles Barkley impression, which was OK, but he then took the opportunity to get a dig in on Shaq. Oh, he went there.
TNT is having an awful lot of fun tonight with their Photoshop. Using it to turn the hottest point guard in the NBA right now, Jeremy Lin, into the greatest point guard in the history of the game. They also had a chance to turn Shaquille O’Neal into, well, some James Brown-Pat Riley hybrid. There’s no other way to explain it.
Oh, they have fun on Inside the NBA. Dunks, trampolines, enormous men in red sweaters trying to dunk off of trampolines. And yes, Shaq’s attempt at flight last night didn’t go so well. But you know what? With nearly a full year of retirement under his belt, he’s probably pushing 335 at this point. So God bless him for trying. Video after the jump.
Big ups to Kobe Bryant, who tonight passed his one-time teammate Shaquille O’Neal for fifth place in the NBA’s all-time scoring list. Heading into tonight, Kobe needed 24 points against the 76ers to gain sole possession of fifth place. Well, he wasted no time in hitting that mark, as it took just 17 minutes for the Mamba to score his first 24 points.
What if the Eastern and Western Conferences had All-Star teams based on Twitter and Facebook followings? Well, this is what it would look like.
